Suzanne Lacy's colourful look at impact of the border on people's everyday lives

Across and In-Between is an artwork about the act of drawing a line in a map and an exploration of the social impact of that

BREXIT, the First World War and the everyday lives of people living on both sides of the border come under the spotlight in a new art project premièring at the Ulster Museum this month.

For Across and In-Between American visual artist Suzanne Lacy collaborated with over 300 residents of Fermanagh, Donegal, Leitrim, Cavan and |Monaghan to explore the impact the border has on their lives.

"Our project draws those who live along the often-invisible boundaries between countries into a conversation—metaphoric and literal – on personal and symbolic meanings of this border and by extension all such borders drawn by political forces," Lacy explains.

Her film The Yellow Line will be projected on the front of the museum building from 6-9pm, October 18 -23, supported by an exhibition featuring documentary interviews and the opportunity to contribute to the conversation about the Border People's Parliament from 10am daily.
